I would be interested in hearing what everyone thinks of the syntax, in
Ephesians 3.1, of TOUTOU XARIN and whether the sentence should be
understood as with an understood EIMI or without. In the WBC series,
Lincoln suggests it is the beginning of a sentence that is not resumed
again until v. 14 (Lincoln, _Ephesians_, 172; also cf. Barth, _Ephesians
1-3_, 326ff). This is in contrast to the Peshitta, Chrysostom, et al. who
render the verse as TOUTOU XARIN EGW PAULOS EIMI O DESMOS TOU XRISTOU....
I do not have access presently to Chrysostom but the Peshitta renders it
somewhat woodenly (with the exception of the second pronoun), assumably
directly from the Greek as it was understood early on: METULL HANA) )ENA)
PAWLAWS )ASIRA) )NA) DYE#UW( ...
I would like to know how others see this verse and how best to understand
TOUTOU XARIN in the syntax of the passage -- i.e., suggestions on how to
diagram it. If anyone has access to Best's NICC commentary that just came
out I would be interested to hear what he suggests for this passage.
Thanks for any help in advance.
